    Last night I had a dream (or a premonition?)

    I had to go back to work as I had completely depleted my retirement fund with my (obscene) opera obsession

    but it was okay, there was Maria there to hold my hand.

    Yes, I gone and dun it.

    Oh I'm man enough to take the financial hit.




    Just wondering how I can sneak it into the house and hide it before the wife sees it.

    I've wanted to familiarize myself with Die tote Stadt for some time, and this Finnish National Opera production has soloists in the roles of Paul and Marietta (Klaus Florian Vogt and Camilla Nylund) to whom I know I'll enjoy listening.

    Will do. I watched the first act yesterday evening, and so far, I like this very much. Vogt's voice seems just about ideal for the high-lying role of Paul, and Nylund's been one of my fave sopranos for almost 10 years. Markus Eiche, the baritone who sings Frank/Fritz, also seems quite good.

  16. Thanks Hoffmann thanked for this post

    I've got the set lined up, but it will need to wait until after I move. Real estate expenses/taxes and moving expenses are the 8th Wonder of the World.

    Good thing I don't have to move DA's CD/DVD collection!

    Markus Eiche has been consistently good in anything I have seen him in.

    I overspent recently, so if I stop posting (rejoice!), check the obits. I suspect that the queen of the budget will use poison, but firearms are also in the equation. So ... it started with the Glyndebourne Fledermaus, then Der Rosenkavalier, then the three Mozart operas from the ROH (pre-release) and finally Simplicious on Blu ray. Until I saw a "used-like new" Carmen with Antonacci in Blu ray for about $12 (US).

    I think I will see if there is a Betty Ford Clinic kind of place for operaholics ...

    What we all need to do is move in together and pool the resources.
